This February, be part of something great. Cupid’s Undie Run is a “brief” fun run in the middle of a huge party. Attendees can party and run about a mile at their own pace in their skivvies (or costumes) all to find a cure to Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 children at birth. Whether with a team, with your friends or even solo, celebrate the season of love by heading to the Motor City’s entertainment district and raising some money for research in Neurofibromatosis.

With Detroit Pre-Dating, guests can meet up to 12 or more single professionals in less than two hours. The event will serve as a series of “facilitated introductions” like going to a party with a good host. Afterward, people who have found an interest, which can discreetly be circled on an interest sheet, will get an email with links to contact mutual matches. There’s no pressure, no rejection, no embarrassment and no games, just fun ways for people to get to know one another
